Studio Art Portfolio Preparation

Drew university is pleased to offer a series of two-week, intensive studio art portfolio preparation classes designed for rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors who are interested in majoring in art in collect or simply have a love for art.

All classes will take place in Drew’s outstanding art facility, the Dorothy Young Center for the Arts, which has state-of-the-art studios and other learning spaces designed specifically for art students.

Mixed Media Works on Paper

Use drawing, painting and sculpture skills to create a series of works on paper.
Materials unique to printmaking — collagraph, monotype, etching and relief — will be used to make rich, colorful images. Emphasis will be placed on developing visual language with texture, layering and spontaneous application of ink using non-toxic approaches. We will use copper plates and a corrosive salt (no acid!) for etching, and build collagraphs with cardboard, thin textured materials and glue.

Discussion of contemporary art practice will take place as students sample approaches to describing pertinent issues and concerns with evocative, multilevel print techniques.

July 6 – 16, 2015
9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Monday through Thursday
Professor Ahni Kruger


In this class, students will learn the basics of drawing. Through use of line, shape, mass, space, texture and color, and drawing concepts like contour drawing, gesture drawing and negative shape drawing, students will experience how these visual art elements and concepts transform into art that can effect us emotionally, physically, psychologically and intellectually.

This class is designed to afford the student a strong foundation in basic drawing concepts. A variety of materials will be used for the purpose of experiencing how their personalities can influence content. Class critiques will help students to verbalize the relationship between the real world and the world of drawing.

August 10 – 20, 2015
9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Monday through Thursday
Professor William Mutter


Tuition for each class is $875. Tuition does not include the cost of supplies, which is estimated at approximately $200 per class.
